The Heartland Roots Band are at the vanguard of the new wave of British country-rock acts currently attracting attention on both sides of the Atlantic.
Formed in Leicester, England the six piece band play 'Heartland Rock', a genre which combines elements of country rock, folk, with other rootsy aspects such as blue-eyed soul and rhythm and blues.
Although musical and lyrical references are culled from a wealth of modern and classic country, the most common comparison that onlookers have commented upon is the apparent influence, both in instrumentation and use of layered vocal harmonies, of Fleetwood Mac. HRB have embraced this by cheekily throwing in the odd barnstorming rendition of ‘Go Your Own Way’ into the band’s legendarily blissful live performance
The Heartland Roots Band self-released the EP ‘Back for More' before touring in Europe during 2018. In January 2019 the band signed to The Animal Farm label and their first three singles, 'Breaking Away’, 'Gasoline' and 'Hit Me Like A Freight Train' were released between August 2019 and February 2020. Each new song has received airplay in the UK, Europe and the USA. The band's next single, ‘Country Miles’ will be released on May 31st 2020.
